How do you turn off the water spigot outside After closing it full water is still flowing The only way you can stop the water is by using the shutoff valves attached below the handle Help?

Sounds like you have a bad valve. It would be best to replace the valve, most last a long time, but they do wear out. It is probably a gate valve, they are not that costly and are not difficult to replace. Before you replace the valve, you might want to check the rubber washer and/or seat within the spigot handle. Sometimes the washer will tear and will allow water to flow. Seats also wear in time and won't allow the washer to seal. Washers and seals are "a dime a dozen" and certainly much cheaper to replace than a new valve - also a lots easier to replace. Borrow a home repairs book from the library or do a Google search on plumbing repairs for detailed info on how to do it.

What is Earth Day?

Earth Day is a name used for an observance held annually in spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere. It is intended to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth's environment.

Earth Day, as it is known in the United States, is held on April 22 each year to promote awareness of environmental issues. The first Earth Day was in 1970. Created so there would be more awareness about the need to clean up the Earth, it raises awareness about the Earth's condition, and encourages people to reduce their pollutants and recycle more. The idea is to make this planet better for this generation and future generations. It also encourages everyone to participate in an attempt to make our global environment better.

Earth Hour is a separate observance which was begun in Sydney, Australia in 2007. At this time, everyone is supposed to turn off their lights for one hour. This is performed globally in order to get a full awareness and appreciation of the energy used and the importance of conservation, but it is a separate event from Earth Day.

Remember the 3 Rs: Reduce Reuse Recycle.

What are the important features of the natural environment?

By definition the natural environment is the condition of living and non-living things which occur in a state substantially not influenced by humans.

This means they exist and change only by natural forces like weather or predators for example rather than with human influence such as that in an urban environment or zoo which are synthetic. Without human intervention, materials and energy are recycled in a steady cycle which maintains the environment's organisms and landscape.

Features of a natural environment usually consist of a variety of adapted living organisms and cycles like that of water or rocks that determine the climate and terrain. This can include volcanoes, waterfalls, rivers, flood plains, rock formations...
